What you will learn

There is a need to identify the main components of an organisation or a sub-set of it (such as its information systems), and the ways in which these components work together in order to achieve defined business objectives. The components will include staff, business processes, technology, information, financial and other resources, etc. If the architecture is designed to ensure the choice of appropriate components and to specify how they will operate together smoothly and efficiently, the enterprise will benefit. But if decisions about components and their interrelationships are uncoordinated, ad-hoc or localised, the result is likely to be duplication of effort and resources, poor coordination and control, problems with management and business performance, inability to share important resources such as information, and inefficiencies in operation. Lack of attention to enterprise architectures can inhibit change, and inappropriate architectures can become barriers to progress.

The MOD has recognised the value of an enterprise architecture approach and has developed MODAF. In order to realise the benefits that an enterprise architecture approach can provide, strategic goals are developed based on the use of MODAF.

Attendees will have an opportunity to see and (on Practitioner I and II) use an architecting tool to develop and exploit MODAF architectures. The course focuses on MODAF not the specific tool used and therefore has applicability regardless of the tool you may use or be considering. You will gain insight into the way architecting tools are used and how they support the development and exploitation of MODAF architectures.
